Pastor Chris Mordi Arrested For Propagating Hate Speech In Lagos by Harbdulrasaq(m): 7:08pm On May 07, 2018
Police in Lagos have arrested a 35-year-old pastor, Chris Mordi, of the Miracle of Fires Ministry, Langbasa, Ajah, Lagos, for allegedly propagating hate speech in the state.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Edgal Imohimi, disclosed this to newsmen, stressing that the suspect was arrested on May 5 at Ado Road, Langbasa area of Ajah in Lagos.

Edgal said that the Pastor was arrested allegedly while in possession of an inciting publication titled: “Beware of Catholic Women Organisation (CWO) and Knights of the Catholic for they are occultic.”

He said that the pastor had invited his church members for a programme where he was to make a public pronouncement on the issue before the publications were intercepted on May 5.

“This is a case of insult to religion and propagation of hate speech which contravene Sections 124 and 168 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State 2015.

“This should be a lesson to be imbibed by all religious leaders. We must encourage and preach religious tolerance,”
he said.

He said that the clergyman would be charged to court for alleged hate speech and religious intolerance.

This is pure religious politics and nothing else.

Some of the people he wanted to speak against were shrewd enough to intercept him, that's all.

'Cause if it were just a matter of degrading the religious practices of others, all the Pastors desecrating Shrines, all the Imams that fervently wind up their members against other religions and all the Prophets that surreptitiously but unequivocally denigrate the OTHER religion would have also been nabbed.


And the one that Daddy Freeze has been doing is what??

As far as truth or personal opinion has to be communicated, we must be wise to do so in a way that will not violently pitch one side against another, especially when it's religious.

Yes, your instincts aren't right. If you'd taken time to read without being blinded by politics and hate, you'll have seen that it was not a political comment the pastor made.

Religion and political matters are deeper than what we the ordinary citizens knew. Politics and religions are inseparable. May God and politicians help us in this country that we will live in peace.

I would have love to listen to what the pastor has to say about the Catholic Women Organization & the Knights that made him believe that they are demonic & satanic because I am very sure within me that the so called pastor himself does not even know about what he is about telling his followers or he just want to make a controversial statement so as to make himself popular & see if that will increase the population of his church

Of course, but that doesn't give anyone the liberty to make libelous statements against somebody. Or to verbally threaten another person. In case you didn't know, in law, a threat alone is seen as being equal to an actual commission of a crime.

Why should he be criticising Catholics?
Some of these Pentecostals and their methods.
I thought the Bible said judge not.
This is indeed a hate speech.
religious fanatics everywhere.
Nonsense.

That's why I am still proud to be a Methodist.
All these new age ministries don't move me.
God is everywhere
Jesus prayed that the church will be one, but some fanatics want to cause division in the body of Christ.

This must be religion politics and not the circular one. God instructs us to be one body, but are today Christian obeying that lstruction?

If that is the "hate speech" then I wonder what Ishaq Akintola and his MURIC gang are still doing walking the streets of this country.

Democracy can be traced to ancient Greece but modern day democracy started with the French revolution of 1979 ..but the French didn't put it into practice.. USA did.

He is wrong, but who is it that is free of criticising others? Is it you who call pastors yahoo yahoo? Or you who daily attack some notable pastors?

Reading through the comments here shows we are so spiteful of others and critical too.

It's time to grow up. Catholic, Methodist, Small Church, whatever. Live and let's live.

People are not even being arrested here for hate speech, verbal threats or libel, like they do in western countries where the law works better. Last year, a teenager was jailed for life in the US for merely threatening an attack via Twitter. Do you know how many arrests police make on daily basis in America just because of social media posts or the number of Americans who have been arrested for threatening the president online?

supporting the government only when it does things in your interest is synonymous to slavery of the mind.

This is so wrong. If this rubbish called hate speech continues, people won't be able to say the obvious truth, let alone preach the truth of Christianity .

Hate speech is a trap and a crap.
